We all enjoyed, but thought that the limoncello taste was a little overwhelming, even with only the one tablespoon per drink listed in the recipe. Didn't sugar coat the rim, though, and that could have added a hint more sweetness to counteract the rather bitter limoncello. These are refreshing and a nice change from the more usual mimosas, so we will definitely be making them again.
Champagne Limoncello Cocktails
A sugared rim is a pretty touch—rub a cut lemon wedge on the rim of the glass, and roll in sugar. You don't need to purchase expensive Champagne for this cocktail; just be sure to use brut, the driest Champagne, or a dry cava or prosecco.
